    Pleased that something is happening, and they are making a serious effort via the insulin to get your levels down quickly. As for complications and insulin no. It does mean keeping control, and then you should have a normal long life. The problems arise when people don't keep control. Forget to eat, don't inject, eat the wrong things and don't correct it etc.

    This is an old thread and the OP hasn't visited since April so she probably won't see your posts unfortunately.

    I am a bit surprised at the lack of referance to the glicemic index for diet.
    I am new to the forum but an old hand at type 2. I controlled for the 6 years with diet only and mt teh insistence of my doctor I am now on metaformin. I have always wondered at the ignorance of my fellow sufferers of the GI index but here is my advice to high blood sugar - obviously lose weight ( I lost 25% of body mass) but learn to eat LOW GI - understand that eeating white bread is like eating sugar, fire your dietician, eat 5 meals a day of only low, and then you too will be skinny (and freezing in the winter) miserable at what you cannot eat, but your toes will be in place and you will have a low H1.
    Good luck, excuse the lecture (it makes me mad to read about 30 million Indians suffeing from diabetes)

    Please dont generalise if I lost 25 per cent of my body weight I would
    weigh about 5 stone and be very ill
